Everybody wants a piece of animation pie around the holidays, and the folks at NBC’s sitcom Community are no different. The creative team behind the show debuted a two-minute animated trailer, titled “Miracle on Jeff’s Street,” teasing the January 2nd return of the popular show to the lineup.
Similar to the show’s 2012 online series Abed’s Master Key, the trailer featured animated versions of the characters Jeff Winger (Joel McHale), Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) and Chang (Ken Jeong). Winger is having a drink alone at home, when Dean and Chang break through his apartment window, dressed as Santa Claus and a reindeer. Then, things go awry and well, you have to check it out yourself.
This isn’t the first time the show has played around with the animation medium. Fans may recall that Community offered a special stop-motion holiday offering back in December of 2010.
Here is the new animated trailer:
